Motown Records celebrate their 50th birthday today. The Motown sound provided much of the soundtrack for my early teenage years and I count myself extremely fortunate to have experienced this wonderful music while I was still a teenybopper.;storylist=newsmichigan

Looks like that was a link too far...try this one...

However, the celebrations will be tinged with sadness, with the news that the legendary Funk Brother, Joe Hunter has died.

Mega egg on face time...humble apologies...I've just been informed Joe died on Feb 3, 2007...

Great interview with Barry Gordon by Tavis Smiley today - Barry's stories about Stevie Wonder are hilarious.
